This is a reissue of the 1967 Danelectro Hornet guitar. It has two lipstick pickups with separate tone and volume controls, 3 way selector switch, Danelectro style bridge with adjustable wooden saddle and vibrato arm, and lightly radiused rosewood fingerboard on a thin, wide bolt on neck that makes it easy to play. 6 on a side Kluson style tuners with plastic buttons. Thin dual cutaway offset wood body with brushed aluminum-look plastic control cover and "holographic" plastic pick guard.

The tone is classic Danelectro - raunchy, biting, great for blues, punk, garage psychedelic, or the rougher types of country and surf. Link Wray played a Dano when he didn't use a Gibson and is reputed to have used it on the original recording of Rumble. A lot of blues player have used Danos and they make great guitars for slide.
